Great Metal Love Songs

Much has been said about metal love songs as of late. In fact, the Kerrang Channel recently played what was considered the greatest fifty power ballads. I didn’t watch as much as I would have liked but I could agree with some of the songs, although I personally wouldn’t call “How You Remind Me” by Nickelback a love song or even a ballad, but everyone has different ideas to what a ballad is.

It has been often said that every heavy metal band has its token ballad, although I don’t think anyone would dare say that to Exodus and a few like minded bands. As I’m beginning to mellow with age, well just a liittle, I have been taking more notice of some of these softer songs. Today I’m going to list the ones that I think most metalhead males play to their female counterparts in the hopes it will get them laid.

                                       

  • KISS- Beth
  • Motley Crue- Home Sweet Home
  • Poison- Every Rose Has Its Thorn
  • Def Leppard- When Love And Hate Collide
  • Guns and Roses- November Rain
  • Jouney- Open Arms
  • Rush- Closer To the Heart
  • Twisted Sister- You’re Not Alone (Suzette’s Song)
  • TNT- Lost Without Your Love
  • Twisted Sister- The Price
  • Thunder- A Better Man
  • Extreme- More Than Words
  • Little Angels- I Ain’t Gonna Cry
  • Aerosmith- I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing
  • The Scorpions- Winds of Change (Yes I know its about the collapse of the Berlin Wall, but a lot of ladies still like it)
  • Def Leppard- Love Bites
  • Nazereth- Love Hurts
  • Slade- My Oh My
  • April Wine- Just Between You and Me
  • Tyketto- Standing Alone
  • Pretty Boy Floyd- I Wanna Be With You
  • Mass- Do You Love Me

  • Metallica- Nothing Else Matters
  • LA Guns- Ballad of Jane
  • Danger Danger- One Step From Paradise
  • Nelson- Love and Affection
  • Dokken- Alone Again
  • Crystal Ball- Silence of the Night
  • Alice Cooper- You and Me
  • Alice Cooper- I’ll Never Cry
  • Alice Cooper- Only Women Bleed
  • Heart- Alone

  • Def Leppard- Bringing On the Heartbreak
  • Heart- These Dreams
  • Whitesnake- Here I Go Again
  • Steelheart- I’ll Never Let You Go
  • Thin Lizzy- I’m Still In Love With You

Obviously, this list is in no means exhaustive and there are probably many more songs you metalheads play to your girlfriends in order to seduce them. Please, let me know your favourites.

    • Thanks for the compliments. I figured that no matter how many songs I name, I was bound to miss some. Totally forgot about Van Halen and I never heard (to my shame) the Cinderella offering. Thanks for your contribution and I will definitely check out you blog.
